Out with the old and in with the new. I have a big affinity for breakfast and oatmeal is a go to during the winter months, however it’s not very appealing when the weather starts to warm up. Overnight refrigerated oatmeal is a delicious and easy meal to grab out of the fridge on while you’re on the go. I make mine in small mason jars for storage and travel convenience. Who knows where all of the Tupperware disappears to, most likely with all the socks you lose while doing the laundry. This breakfast is packed with nutrients to kick your day off in a healthy way. It’s nutritious and delicious! Your ingredient options are almost endless depending on your taste preference, but here are a few of my favourite flavour combos!

I use almond milk for all the recipes but any milk will do just fine! I also add chia seeds or hemp hearts  to all of the recipes for some added nutrients but it’s not necessary.
Pour the oatmeal in first and then add your milk. Shake those two up and add the rest of your ingredients afterwards. Give them a stir, slap a lid on and let the oats soak up all that goodness overnight.

1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 peeled diced apples

Chocolate Raspberry

1/4 cup uncooked old fashioned rolled oats
